AUBURN — A driver who fled from the Washington State Patrol fatally shot himself as the chase came to an end early Wednesday on Highway 167 in Auburn.
The Patrol says the chase began in Renton and ended about 1 a.m. after a spike strip was used to flatten both right-side tires. The car suddenly veered to the left into a barrier and came to rest in the grassy median.
When troopers approached, they found the 34-year-old man dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
